Alice Caviness Signed Watermelon Rivoli Rhinestone Flower Spray Necklace Earrings Demi Parure
This is a stunning and dramatic necklace and earrings parure from Alice Caviness. The necklace and earrings are bold and beautiful, and really a showstopper. This gorgeous Alice Caviness rhinestone and faux pearl set has tons of razzle dazzle! It is very high end, and in researching other Caviness rhinestone pieces no other one currently listed could compare...however...the matching brooch is listed!! The set features a several shapes, and sizes of stones and is loaded with topaz and magenta pink chatons and marquise rhinestones and a watermelon margarita rivoli to set them off.. Hanging from the bottom are wonderful teardrop faux pearls, deep pink and topaz marquise stones. A very complex, dimensional design that looks even better in person than in the photographs. Necklace measures 16" to the center piece and it is another 3" long the earrings are 1-3/8" long and 7/8" across. I have the brooch that matches this set also!!
This set reminds me of Delizza and Elster pieces, and since they produced jewelry for other designers, it could well be. The pieces are all marked "ALICE CAVINESS" (no copyright symbol) on an oval cartouche. This is Alice Caviness at her most artful, top-of-the-line self! In excellent condition.
Alice Caviness created high end costume jewelry from the mid-1940s until the early 1980s. The jewelry was designed by Alice and her head designer, Millie Petronzio, using the best quality pieces. Camille "Millie" Petronzio (current head designer for Miriam Haskell) worked for Caviness for many years, earning two Swarovski Awards for her imaginative and timeless designs. Measurements:
Alice was very picky about where her jewelry was sold and only allowed it to be in the highest end shops and boutiques. Her jewelry was not mass produced and therefore, very collectible, besides the fact that it is just beautiful and unique.
